👉 If your video contains speech and it's in English, you're welcome to try our Closed Captions feature. 

Alternatively, you can add subtitles to your video following these steps: 

  1. Open your project
  2. Choose Text from the main toolbar > select Text > add text: A blue text bar appears above your video
  3. Position the playhead (yellow vertical line) at the point where you want the text to change
  4. Choose Split from the editing toolbar, or from the shortcut menu—trigger this menu by tapping on the text in the timeline once more
  5. A new text bar appears: Tap it
  6. Choose Edit from the editing toolbar to add new text

Repeat steps 3-6 to add text to different parts of your video. 


You can position your text as desired and change its size on the Preview screen. You can personalize your subtitles by choosing features from the editing toolbar, such as Color, Font, Background, and Opacity. See our video tutorial for all editing options. 

If you're experiencing any issues with our Closed Captions feature, refer to this dedicated article to learn more.
